“You have no power over me”
First appeared as a Web Original on April 2, 2020
Like everyone, I have faced fears of the coronavirus. But whenever they pop up, I have a prayerful response inspired by words of defense spoken by Christ Jesus as he was being questioned by Pilate before the crucifixion. My prayer is, “You have no power over me!”
Pilate, governor of the Roman province of Judaea, had demanded of Jesus, “Why don’t you talk to me?” and continued, “Don’t you realize that I have the power to release you or crucify you?” Jesus answered, “You would have no power over me at all unless it were given to you from above” (John 19:10, 11, New Living Translation).
We can find safety in knowing that God is bigger and more powerful than any fears of a virus!
